DC visitors and staycationers have a new option on the National Mall now that Hilton Washington DC National Mall (480 L’Enfant Plaza) is open and welcoming visitors.
The new hotel is the latest expansion of the Hilton brand in Washington and is the product of a multi-year modernization of an existing property at the top of historic L’Enfant Plaza. Located at the hub of public transit, the hotel adds to the neighborhood 367 guest rooms, 23,000 square feet of flexible meeting and private event spaces, and exquisite dining options.
Situated directly above the L’Enfant Plaza Metro station, this new Hilton grants guests direct access to downtown DC, placing them squarely among iconic institutions as well as a rich selection of cultural experiences. The hotel has direct elevator access to the Metro.
“Our unique location brings incomparable access to all DC has to offer. As a hotel, our goal is to help our guests create incredible memories by revealing the gems of Washington. We are hoping to convey what a world-class international destination our city is no matter what occasions bring travelers here,” says General Manager Claudia Eggspuhler.
The hotel will be the first in Washington to offer exclusively King Deluxe beds in every guest room with two king beds in several. Many rooms bring D.C.’s iconic cherry blossoms – a symbol of international diplomacy and the city’s springtime celebration – inside with subtle inspired artwork and floor to ceiling windows. Modern elements include plank flooring, barn doors, porcelain bathrooms, granite countertops, barstools, and slimline desks. Guests will be able to unwind and freshen up with Crabtree & Evelyn bath amenities.
Rooms boast incomparable views overlooking the city’s distinguished skyline, the Capitol dome, Smithsonian Castle, Washington National Cathedral and Washington Monument, the Potomac River stretching from south to west, or the secluded rooftop pool.
